Magic Tree House books are always a great option to use in the classroom. It is fun and intriguing for the students but it is also educational to them. I would read this book out loud to my students and use it as a free time reading lesson.

“The Summer of the Sea Serpent” is a chapter book about an adventure with a boy, Jack, and girl, Annie. They go on a mission told by the magician, Merlin. The purpose of the mission is to retrieve the “sword of light.” There are riddles and obstacles on the way to find the sword. Their bravery is put to the test on this adventure because on the way they meet the so called sea serpent, which will have the sword they are looking for. The sea serpent and other creatures are out because it is the time for the summer solstice! The central message of this story, like any adventure story, is to always be brave and to achieve what you want you need to work for it. ( )

This book is just as great as the other Magic Treehouse books. This novel is a great stepping-stone from easy chapter books to longer chapter books. Jack and Annie are good role models who are relatable and easy to love. I think the magical aspect of this book is exciting and engaging without being scary, which makes this book age appropriate for its target audience.

FANTASY: This book contains many magical elements throughout.
